Win Holy Rollers posters and DVDs

Holy Rollers

Compiled by Jack Foley

HOLY Rollers is inspired by actual events in the late nineties when Hasidic Jews were recruited as mules to smuggle ecstasy from Europe into America.

Sam Gold (Academy Award-nominee Jesse Eisenberg) is a naive young man from an Orthodox Brooklyn community reluctantly following the path his strict family has chosen. He’s awaiting an arranged marriage and studying to become a Rabbi.

Sam’s bad boy neighbour, Yosef (Justin Bartha, The Hangover 1 and 2) senses Sam’s resistance and propositions him to transport ‘medicine for rich people’ for his boss Jackie (Danny A. Abeckaser), an Israeli gangster.

Sam quickly demonstrates his business skills and Jackie instantly takes him under his wing. Newly exposed to the exciting and gritty drug-fuelled clubs of Manhattan and Amsterdam, Sam spirals out of control, experimenting with ecstasy and falling for Jackie’s girlfriend Rachel (Ari Graynor, The Sopranos).

As the business grows, Sam’s double life begins to rip his family apart and the community becomes suspicious of his illegal activities.

Holy Rollers is on DVD and Blu-Ray from Monday, October 24.
